Reign of X Reading Order

Reign of X is the final part of Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men which began with House of X/Powers of X and the main continuity Dawn of X. In Reign of X the mutants are firmly in Krakoa but everything is not all as it seems. Power struggles, new relationships and fractures from their old lives are front and centre again.

The quality of Reign of X is just as good as Dawn and House/Powers. The mainline issues with Hickman keep his tone and the tie ins do pad out and compliment Hickman’s vision, however the majority of issues aren’t by Hickman. There’s a King in Black crossover, too.

Collecting and reading Reign of X in order is not too tricky, with good trades available.The issue by issue reading order is also fairly straightforward. Let’s get to it.
